Teenage years are stressful on the teen and the family. Is your teen having a hard time making healthy choices? Are they angry for no apparent reason? Is your teen a bully or are they being bullied? Parenting a teenager is difficult. I specialize in counseling for teens. It can get better, with the right help. I’ve been working with teens for many years and I know how tough it can be on the teen and the parent. Imagine your teen being able to communicate their thoughts/feelings without anger or resentment. I can help you build trust with your teen and communicate without arguing in family counseling.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
We will collaboratively work together, using my expertise and your unique situation, to find the best solution to help you in your life.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as my primary resources. I always tailor my approach to best fit each clients needs.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My passion is to enrich the lives of parents and teens through family counseling. I understand families and know how to help you. Family counseling will help you improve communication, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem solving skills and much more. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was a high school teacher for 11 years. This gives me a unique perspective to help you and your teen through the challenges they face.
